Gillard bereft of ideas!
Julia Gillard has cynically called a meeting of Labor's backbench ostensibly to come up with some new ideas for her struggling government. This will have the dual purpose of placating restive backbenchers by giving them something to do and trying to give the illusion of motion to voters using the medium of butchers paper and felt pens, ironically used in kindergartens for expression of ideas . I wonder if the best ones are going up on Julia's refrigerator. Of course the best idea for Australia would be to scrap the awful carbon tax which will not happen.
THE last time Canberra witnessed a major outbreak of butcher paper and textas was during the 2020 Summit, Kevin Rudd's ambitious attempt four years ago to bring together Australia's brightest people and tap them for big ideas.
